  Tango is a control system based on the device server concept. It is currently being actively developed by 4 (soon 5) institutes, 3 of which are new institutes. In October 2006 the Tango community met in the French Alps to discuss the future evolution of Tango. This paper summarizes the fruits of this meeting. It presents the different areas Tango will concentrate on for the next 5 years. Some of the main topics concern services, beamline control, embedded systems on FPGA, 64-bit support, scalability for large systems, faster boot performance, enhanced Python and Java support for servers, more model-driven development, and integrated workbench-like applications. The aim is to keep on adding batteries to Tango so that it remains a modern, powerful control system that satisfies not only the needs of light-source facilities but other communities too.
